Conflict cloud on Virat Kohli
BCCI ethics officer DK Jain on Sunday said he is examining a Conflict of Interest (CoI) complaint against India captain Virat Kohli from Madhya Pradesh Cricket Association life member Sanjeev Gupta, who has levelled similar charges against other players in the past which were deemed “infructuous”.
In his latest complaint, Gupta has alleged that Kohli is conflicted as he occupies two posts – captain of the Indian team and director of a venture which has co-directors linked to a talent management company that has on board several of his teammates. Gupta has alleged that it is a violation of the BCCI constitution which bars one individual from holding multiple positions.
“I have received a complaint. I will examine it and then see if the case is made out or not. If yes, then I have to afford an opportunity to him (Kohli) to respond,” Jain said.
